As a foodie, I love nothing more than a burger with chili garlic sauce. The spicy, garlicky flavor is the perfect complement to my favorite chicken burgers. For anyone like me, who loves spice, chili garlic sauce is a must-try sauce. This unique sauce combines the flavor of earthy garlic with the heat of chili peppers, resulting in a memorable taste experience. Chili garlic sauce can be used as a dipping sauce, a marinade, or even just a simple addition to your favorite dish.

Pro Tip: Marinate your chicken wings with some chili garlic sauce, salt, and black pepper for six hours or leave it overnight. Cook in an air fryer or grill your chicken wings. You are surely in for an awesome treat!

Things I look for before refilling my Chili Garlic Sauce


The chili garlic available in the market usually cost around Rs 160 to Rs 180 from 400 gram pouches. The glass variants may cost a little more but I would definitely be okay in paying little extra bucks  to demote plastic wastage.

Packaging Options

I like brands which offer at least more than two packaging options, in terms of sizes and types of bottle. This helps me make mindful decisions, for example I buy a family size which lasts for a longer period of time and it helps me save some bucks, or use eco-friendly glass containers to support our environment.


I am all in for inclusivity so brands coming up with gluten free and sweeter variants makes me happy. It makes me try, and encourage their efforts even if I do not like the taste.
